Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 

Mission 

The mission of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) is 
to provide programs of instruction and training in the art, science, and 
practice of osteopathic medicine in accordance with the osteopathic con- 
cept of etiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment. A major emphasis 
is placed on the the education of students for primary care practice. 

The Medical College 

Philadelphia is renowned for medical education. Among its six well-known 
medical colleges, only one is osteopathic. We are proud of our osteopathic heri- 
tage. The nearly 30,000 osteopathic physicians practicing today are an integral 
part of America's health care delivery system. PCOM trains physicians who go 
where they are needed, to do the job that needs to be done. 

The college is the heart of the Osteopathic Medical Center of Philadelphia 
(OMCP). Our primary mission is to train students who will become skilled, 
caring, and successful physicians guided by the strengths of osteopathic princi- 
ples refined during a century of medical practice, teaching, and research. 

PCOM was chartered in 1899 and has graduated more than 7,600 physicians. 
The college founders, O.J. Snyder, DO, and Mason Pressly, DO, were out- 
spoken, pioneering physicians who explored and taught the use of manipulative 
therapy in the prevention of disease long before the use of penicillin and mod- 
em drugs. Each year, Founders Day celebrates our origin as a professional 
school dedicated to "improved methods of the healing arts in accordance with 
osteopathic principles . . . and to research and the dissemination of scientific 
knowledge." 

Today, all treatment modalities are available to osteopathic physicians 
who may prescribe drugs, perform surgery, and specialize in any area of medi- 
cine. DOs, whose primary care training prepares them to be superior diagnosti- 
cians, are represented throughout the United States and in all branches of 
military service. 

As the largest of the 15 osteopathic colleges, PCOM is the flagship school 
of osteopathic medical education. Our total student body numbers 826 and our 
100th class will graduate in 1991. Seventy percent of our students are 
Pennsylvanians and the remainder represent 20 states. Thirty-seven percent of 
the most recent class entering PCOM are women, and more than 200 colleges 
are represented in the student body. 

Other components of our educational/health-care complex serve the 
teaching function as well, and major developments have enhanced training 
capabilities. The 424-bed acute care general hospital of the college is located on 
two campuses. Our teaching hospitals are equipped with magnetic resonance 
imaging services and a top-notch CT scanner, along with four renovated surgery 
suites and a new video system for teaching. 



College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Supported by the -best modem technology, PCOM emphasizes the basics, to 
prepare students for the practice of medicine in the twenty-first century. 
Each student is trained in the skills of primary care in order to treat the whole 
person, not merely the symptoms, and to understand the unique importance of 
the neuro-musculoskeletal system to health and well-being. The thorough foun- 
dation in primary care provides the base for specialty selection for those 
students oriented to the specialties. The educational program provides extensive 
opportunities for students to explore the specialty disciplines. 

Accreditation 

Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is approved by the American 
Osteopathic Association upon recommendation of its Bureau of Professional 
Education, which is recognized by the National Commission on Accrediting. The 
college is a member of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic 
Medicine, which is a constituent member of the American Council on Education. 
The college is also accredited by the Department of Education of the Common- 
wealth of Pennsylvania. Documents of accreditation are on file in the President's 
office, with copies in the Dean's Office, and may be seen upon request. Colleges

Introduction to Osteopathic Medicine 

Definition 

As a philosophy, science and art, osteopathic medicine is a total approach to 
health and disease. It recognizes that the neuromusculoskeletal system is of 
major importance to human life. The interrelationship between this and other 
body systems is a basic part of osteopathic philosophy. 

Osteopathic medicine is a comprehensive approach to health and disease. Its 
emphasis upon primary care, health maintenance, and prevention of disease and 
attention to the neuromusculoskeletal system are keys to its medical education 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 



and practice. Universally accepted today, these attributes were considered 
unorthodox when Dr. Andrew Taylor Still (1828-1917) objected to the crude 
medications of his time and sought to enhance the body's inherent healing 
through manipulation. 

Like our MD counterparts, DOs must be licensed in the states where they 
practice, and additional board certification in specialties further under- 
scores their professional credentials. All 50 states and the District of 
Columbia provide for the unlimited practice of medicine and surgery by DOs. 
Licensing boards are usually composed of senior members of the osteopathic 
profession. In some states, MDs and DOs in concert examine applicants. 

Philosophy 

The basic premises accepted by this profession provide the osteopathic 
physician with a unique way of looking at health and disease. These premises 
include the following: 

• The human body is a unit in which structure and function are recipro- 
cally interdependent. 

• The body, through a complex system, tends to be self-regulating and 
self-healing. 

• The adequate function of body systems depends on the unimpeded 
flow of blood and nerve impulses. 

• The musculoskeletal system is a major body system, and its importance 
exceeds that of mere framework and support. 

• There are musculoskeletal components to disease which are not only 
manifestations of the disease, but also important contributing and main- 
taining factors. Appropriate treatment is of significant value. 

The adoption of these basic premises led to the development of the osteo- 
pathic total-body concept. The patient is considered ecologically rather than as 
an isolated unit. Instead of emphasizing the momentary disease state, the osteo- 
pathic approach studies and treats the person's well-being, lifestyle and behavior 
as a whole. 

The osteopathic physician incorporates evaluation and treatment of the 
musculoskeletal system as a basis for an approach to health and disease, 
combining it with the diagnostic and therapeutic modalities used by general 
scientific approaches to the healing arts. 

Through the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), the profession 
maintains its independence and its own medical schools and hospitals while co- 
operating with other branches of medical science. General practice is empha- 
sized in the educational program, and a majority of graduates enter this field. 
However, DOs participate in all specialty and subspecialty areas of current 
medical practice.

The Course of Study 

Educational Goals 

The primary educational goal of the college is to prepare students for excel- 
lence in the general practice of osteopathic medicine. The course of study is a 
practitioner's program with a strong emphasis on primary care, prevention, and 
osteopathic concepts. 

Each PCOM student progresses through a uniform and comprehensive 
curriculum designed to achieve this goal. Elective clinical rotations expose stu- 
dents to specialty or subspecialty fields during training, and later they may spe- 
cialize. At PCOM, students first are trained as general practitioners and thus build 
solid foundations for their careers. Throughout the curriculum, osteopathic con- 
cepts and methods are stressed. 

Efficiency is also an educational goal, maximizing each student's learning by 
utilizing the most effective educational methodologies available. Innovations 
such as computerized tutorials, classroom videos, and simulated patient encoun- 
ters, will sharpen skills as a physician. Our curriculum revision bridges old 
departmentalizations, joining related disciplines,such as pathology to surgery and 
internal medicine, so that students relate different perspectives to a variety of 
conditions taught in a common time frame. 

Instruction is attuned to the changing demands in American health care. 
About 80 percent of our graduates enter primary care practice where the 
large majority of health problems are treated today. Our division of geri- 
atrics, for example, was recently created because the aged represent the 
most rapidly growing population segment today. 

The Basic Sciences and Preclinical Years 

The first two years lay the foundation with intense concentration on the basic 
sciences, anatomy, biochemistry, neuroscience, physiology, microbiology, pathol- 
ogy, and pharmacology. PCOM also recognizes that medical practice is more 
than science. Courses in bioethics and human sexuality will help the student re- 
late well to patients, while medical law and medical economics prepare students 
for the complex world of private practice. 

The basic sciences are complemented by clinical courses in internal medicine, 
surgery, neurology, psychiatry, pediatrics, OB/GYN, family medicine, rehabilita- 
tion medicine, geriatrics, radiology, and physical diagnosis. The principles and 
practices of osteopathic medicine are taught throughout. The second year culmi- 
nates in a clinical skills week in which students pull their knowledge of clinical 
medicine together, refine their skills, and practice on a simulated patient. 

As an early clinical experience, students are paired with a geriatric patient 
early in the first year. The student's responsibilities evolve from tending to the 
social needs of a geriatric patient to active involvement with the patient's health 
care as the student progresses through the curriculum. 



13 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Clinical Education 

The last v^-o years emphasize clinical training experiences. You will be as- 
signed clinical rotations throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and 
neighboring states. This unique training network comprises PCOM's own hospi- 
tal, 28 affiliated hospitals, five health care centers, numerous outpatient units, 
and scores of physician's offices. These clinical settings become teaching arms of 
the college; in effect, the Commonwealth is our campus. 

The program is designed to afford progressive student responsibility for all 
phases of patient care under the direction of experienced physicians. This in- 
cludes history taking, physical examinations, daily patient rounds, lectures, con- 
ferences, and case presentations. Students rotate through services in medicine, 
surgery, general practice, OB/GYN, pediatrics, psychiatry, neurology, 
otorhinolaryngology, and office based preceptorships. On elective rotations, stu- 
dents may choose to pursue special interests at other medical institutions any- 
where in Philadelphia or the nation. 

One objective of the college is to encourage graduates to locate in Pennsylva- 
nia communities where health care services are most needed. Therefore, each 
student entering PCOM must be willing to accept clinical education assignments 
throughout the state. Course work during the third and fourth years is scheduled 
to minimize conflict with clinical duties and responsibilities. 

During the senior year, the student spends sixteen weeks in a Health Care 
Center rotation. Eight weeks are in our urban clinics and eight weeks in one of 
several rural centers located throughout Pennsylvania and surrounding states. 
An altemative rural selective is offered to a limited number of students, 
whereby the student may select an area of altemative health care delivery 
or a rural area of intense medical need. In the past, students have chosen 
studies in India, Israel, Africa, Appalachia, and Indian Health Service sites. 

During the week prior to graduation, the senior students retum to campus for 
didactic and small group sessions in medical office management, as well as in 
medicolegal and ethical issues. 

Requirements for Graduation: Each candidate for the degree of Doctor of 
Osteopathy (DO) must be age 21 or older, be of good moral character and have 
taken Parts I and II of the National Board examinations as scheduled by the 
Office of the Dean. Each candidate must have completed satisfactorily the 
program of study PCOM requires for the degree. 

Each candidate for the degree must be free of indebtedness to the college. 
Neither the college diploma nor an academic transcript will be given until all fi- 
nancial obligations to PCOM have been met. Personal attendance at the com- 
mencement ceremonies conferring the degree is required of each candidate. 

Matriculation and attendance at the college is a privilege granted to the 
student in consideration of performance of specified assignments and the main- 
tenance of established standards of personal and professional conduct. The col- 
lege reserves the right, and the student, by the act of matriculation, concedes to 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 14 



the college the right to require withdrawal at any time the college deems it nec- 
essary to safeguard PCOM standards of scholarship, conduct, and compliance 
with regulations, or for such other reasons deemed appropriate by the college. 

Requirements for Practice: Each recipient of the DO degree must fulfill the 
requirements of the state licensing board of the state in which the physician 
chooses to practice. These requirements vary widely and are regulated by the 
laws of each state. 

Passing state board examinations and being licensed to practice includes the 
privilege of registering for practice in various other states without further exami- 
nations. Students and graduates of PCOM are also eligible for examinations of 
the National Board of Osteopathic Examiners. 

The Degrees A^varded 

PCOM awards one academic doctoral degree. The Doctor of Osteopathy 
(DO) degree is awarded graduates who satisfactorily complete the required four- 
year course of study. 

PCOM also awards a Master of Science (MSc) degree in various clinical 
specialties. The requirements of this degree are described in the section 
of the catalog entitled, "Postdoctoral Education," page 21. 

Predoctoral Research 

The core curriculum requires laboratory studies which further the student's 
training and experience in research. Elective research training experience is also 
available as part of the curriculum. PCOM's own research program is coordinated 
by the Director of Research and the College Research Committee. Specialized 
laboratories, equipment, and an animal facility are available. Research funded by 
the college and outside agencies offers the student extra-curricular research ex- 
perience as part of the work-study program. 

Opportunities exist for extra-curricular research experience for all of PCOM's 
students. Research laboratories and equipment as well as electron microscopic, 
computer and animal facilities are available for this purpose. Students have the 
opportunity to work with faculty members on a variety of biomedical topics. 

Most such research is performed between the first and second academic years. 
Students may be partially funded for their research efforts, based on eligibility, 
through college work study or external granting agencies. A compilation of faculty^ 
research projects /interests may be obtained from the Office of Admissions or the 
Director of Research. 

Special Extended Curriculum 

The college is committed to supporting the students it has selected in their 
pursuit of the DO degree by offering assistance and alternatives when students 
face personal or academic difficulties. In addition to tutoring and summer reme- 
dial courses, the college offers an extended curriculum which distributes the 



15 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Standard first-year course load over two years. 

Based on early first year examination performance, the Dean may make the 
5-year curriculum available to selected students who demonstrate academic 
difficulties early in their medical education. 

DO/MBA Program 

In conjunction with Saint Joseph's University, the Master of Business 
Administration and Doctor of Osteopathy degrees are jointly awarded graduates 
who satisfactorily complete the five-year course of study required by the two 
institutions. 

Created in 1989 as the nation's first DO/MBA degree, the curriculum 
requires 36 hours of MBA course work during two summer sessions and four 
semesters of evening classes in the joint program. This new program responds to 
the increasing need for business acumen in medical practice, especially group 
practices which are small business enterprises. It also prepares physicians for a 
wide range of emerging careers in medical administration business. 

DO/MPH Program 

Students who have successfully completed their first year of study at PCOM 
may enter a special joint degree program in affiliation with Temple University, 
leading to the Master of Public Health. Like the DO/MBA program, the Master of 
Public Health track is a 5-year program. 

The DO/MPH program specializes in community heakh education, and pre- 
pares physicians to serve as public health officials and to fill positions in commu- 
nity, govemment, and health care agencies. The Master of Public Health degree 
also prepares students for eventual specialty training and certification in 
occupational or environmental medicine. The DO/MPH program will be avail- 
able in 1991.

Postdoctoral Education 

A physician's education does not end with a medical degree; it simply contin- 
ues by other means. PCOM conducts postdoctoral courses and programs for 
the purpose of furthering the education of recent graduates of colleges of 
osteopathic medicine and maintaining the knowledge and skills of practicing 
osteopathic physicians. 

Internships and Residencies 

PCOM is rapidly expanding internship and residency opportunities to serve 
the postgraduate education needs of PCOM graduates and those of other 
osteopathic colleges. By utilizing its own teaching hospitals at City Avenue and 
Northeast Philadelphia and through affiliations with Germantown Hospital and 
St. Agnes Hospital, 900 beds currently support the internship and residency train- 
ing programs. Future plans project a doubling of house staff positions in PCOM's 
postgraduate education programs. 

The college also sponsors AOA-approved college coordinated internship prog- 
rams at affiliated hospitals throughout Pennsylvania, which include: 

St. Joseph's Hospital-Philadelphia, PA 
Lewistovm Hospital-Lewistown, PA 
Central Medical Center-Pittsburgh, PA 
Community General Hospital-Reading, PA 
Nesbitt Memorial Hospital-Kingston, PA 

PCOM's residency programs are held to a high standard of clinical excellence, 
a commitment to teaching, and active encouragement of resident research. The 
college currently offers approved residency training in Anesthesiology, ENT, 
Neurosurgery, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic Surgery, Osteopathic Manipulative 
Medicine, General Practice, Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Radiology, 
Obstetrics /Gynecology, Pediatrics, Urology, and Podiatric Surgery. Fellowships are

Continuing Medical Education 

In order to maintain and expand the current knowledge and skills of practic- 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 22 



ing osteopathic physicians, PCOM offers continuing medical education (CME) 
programs throughout the academic year. The college follows the guidelines of 
the AOA Committee on Continuing Medical Education and related criteria. Most 
of the programs are designed to qualify for AOA Category lA CME credits. 
The college offers programs in a wide variety of clinical subjects, osteopathic 
therapeutics, medical office management, and other topics of importance to the 
practicing physician. The program includes short weekend seminars, extended 
programs, alumni travel-CME programs, and special intensive workshops, such as 
laser surgery. 

Registration for any course may be limited on the basis of available seats. 
Registration and tuition fees, when stipulated, are payable at the time of registra- 
tion and are not refundable for non-attendance. Should the college find it neces- 
sary to cancel a course, however, registration fees and /or tuition will be refunded. 

All CME programs are organized under the auspices of the Department of 
Continuing Medical Education. 

On consultation with the director, it may be possible to arrange special 
programs suited to the needs of the individual physician or hospital. At the 
discretion of the director, persons other than osteopathic physicians may, 
upon application, be granted permission to attend CME programs. 

Requests for the CME course calendar published annually, for applications 
and fee/tuition schedules, and other inquiries should be addressed to: 
Director, Department Continuing Medical Education, PCOM, 4150 
City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131. 



Faculty and Educational Facilities 

The Faculty of PCOM 

A highly qualified faculty of certified or board-eligible osteopathic physicians, 
scientists, and support staff implements the educational goals of the college, 
which is the second largest medical school in Pennsylvania. Our faculty members 
are dedicated to the singular purpose of educating students for the skilled and 
caring practice of osteopathic medicine, and therefore have one teaching re- 
sponsibility. They do not divide their teaching time since there are no other 
academic programs or graduate students competing for attention. This enables 
the educational program to achieve a high degree of cohesion and concentra- 
tion for the benefit of our students. 

PCOM has 233 faculty based at our Philadelphia campuses, among whom are 
206 DOs and 27 PhDs. In addition, the academic program is served by 415 prac- 
ticing physician faculty across the country who provide clinical instruction at 
various affiliated sites as volunteer faculty. In a real sense, medical education at 
PCOM is carried out by the larger osteopathic family. Faculty concentration and 
dedication show in the teaching students receive. The appointments of faculty 
members will be found listed under the college departments where they serve. 



23 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Educational Facilities 

The professional resources of a city rich in medical history, achievements, and 
scientific advances are only 15 minutes from the main PCOM campus on City 
Avenue. This is the seventh site of a college that graduated its first class of 
rv\^o physicians in 1900. PCOM has grown steadily to become the hub of an 
educational/health-care complex. 

Evans Hall: During the first two years, students receive hundreds of instruc- 
tional hours in the two amphitheaters in Evans Hall that accommodate 215 
students each. Both lecture halls have superb audiovisual capabilities and are 
equipped with state-of-the-art projection booths. 

The seven levels of Evans Hall also house the college library and the pres- 
ident's suite. Faculty offices throughout the building are combined with 
laboratories where teachers, graduates, and students pursue instruction and 
research. The architecture incorporates the teaching of large classes with the 
enrichment of teacher-student relationships through the use of small library- 
seminar rooms. 

Evans Hall is equipped with varied and sophisticated instructional media, 
exhibit areas, and electronic communications equipment. The ground level has a 
television studio and control booths for the production of color or black and 
white programs, and closed-circuit telecasts or videotapes. Television monitors 
are built into the lecture amphitheaters, laboratories, and other areas in the 
building. Evans Hall and the Hospital of PCOM are linked in a system capable of 
video-taping and telecasting surgical procedures, laboratory experiments, 
demonstrations and lectures. 

The building was dedicated in 1973 in honor of H. Walter Evans, DO, 
distinguished professor of obstetrics and gynecology, and all facilities in the edu- 
cational complex are specially equipped for handicapped students. Evans Hall 
also houses the Student Council, Creative Services comprising graphic design, 
photography, and video production, and the animal facility. 

O.J. Snyder Memorial Library: Our library incorporates the newest concepts in 
facilities and resources. Including bound periodicals, it currently houses 63,175 
volumes and subscribes to 785 medical periodicals, 109 of which are osteopathic 
publications. 

The library services include reference, inter-library loans, photocopying, a 
telefacsimile facility, abstracting and indexing, MEDLINE and other computer 
data base services, manual bibliographic searches and in-house microfilming for 
all of the corporations on campus. 

The audiovisual section of the main reading room contains eight booths, each 
accommodating up to four students. Each is equipped with a videocassette play- 
er and monitor. The projection room is equipped with an overhead screen and 
projectors. Also available for student use are 5,190 medical audiocassettes and 
players with earphones to avoid disturbing others. Students use our 1,528 video- 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 24 



cassettes, 6,255 slides, 323 view master reels, 946 film strips, and microfilm 
(35mm) collection with a reader and printers. 

The mezzanine floor contains a reading room and sections for current and 
bound periodicals, with carrels for individual study, in-depth research, or ab- 
stracting and indexing. A special osteopathic collection is also housed on the 
mezzanine floor. 

The PCOM medical library has joined the networking system of the 15 medical 
libraries throughout Pennsylvania, known as Health Sciences Libraries Consor- 
tium. Because of our full contributing membership to the HSLC for this project, 
PCOM will benefit in the areas of automation, bibliographic conversion of its col- 
lection, computer-assisted instruction, medical informatics program, and other 
automation-related programs. 

The PCOM Medical Library has also become one of the subscriber members of 
the PALINET/OCLC Network. With this membership and also by becoming one 
of the contributing full members of the HSLC, the College Library is now con- 
nected statewide for assimilation and dissemination of medical information. 

Our faculty, students, intems, and residents have direct access to MEDLINE 
through the HSLC, allowing them to search through over 3,000 medical journals 
to support research and education. 

A specially designed Computer Laboratory has been annexed to the library's 
mezzanine floor with IBM-compatible and Apple computers, terminals, and 
printers. A software library is also maintained and regulated from the Circulation 
Desk. In addition to common application programs, such as word processing, 
the software collection includes computer-based tutorials in basic science and 
clinical subjects, including patient case simulations. MEDLINE searches and 
searches of the shared library system of the Pennsylvania medical schools can be 
conducted from terminals in the Computer Laboratory. 

Anatomy Museum: The Angus Gordon Cathie Collection located near the anato- 
my laboratory displays special dissections, specimens and models, and is recog- 
nized as one of the finest of its kind in the world. The museum includes both 
normal and pathological specimens, serial sections, dissections and mounted 
preparations illustrating major diseases. Among the most notable are the collec- 
tions of bone specimens, human embryos, Spalteholtz preparations and models 
of the development of the cardiovascular system. 

Electron Microscopy: Located on the ground floor of Evans Hall, the Electron 
Microscopy Laboratory has two of the most modem pieces of equipment for 
teaching and research. One is a scanning microscope with an attached x-ray 
spectrometer/analyzer providing images of the surface of bulk specimens as well 
as information about the elemental composition of specimens or specimen parts 
taken from x-ray spectra. The other is a transmission microscope that serves as 
the high resolution analog of the light microscope. Tissue processing and photo- 
graphic capabilities are also present. The laboratory staff is involved with basic 



2 5 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



and clinical research studies and also does diagnostic studies for the Department 
of Pathology. 

Moss House: This elegant stone mansion stands at the center of the l6-acre 
Moss estate purchased by the college in 1957 as iLs present campus. It now 
houses College Alumni Relations and Development, Public Relations and Market- 
ing, Psychiatry department faculty offices and Human Resources. 

Rowland Hall: Purchased and occupied by the college in 1981, this modem 
five-story building has a reception area, apothecary, and out patient laboratory 
services on the ground floor. Rowland Hall is a combined education /patient-care 
facility. Along with a 500-seat classroom, it houses 80 physician's offices, 
bookstore, group and individual student study areas, a student lounge and fit- 
ness room, the college Financial Aid Office, and other administrative offices. It is 
named in honor of Dr. Thomas M. Rowland, Jr., a former president of PCOM 
who devoted 34 years of leadership to the college. 

The Bookstore: The college bookstore is located on the first floor of Rowland 
Hall. It is a convenient source for required textbooks, and special orders for 
unstocked titles may be placed through the store manager. Also available are aca- 
demic and office supplies along vvdth gift items. 

The Hospital of PCOM: The 424 bed acute care general hospital is devoted to 
patient care, intensive teaching, and research. It is situated on two campuses: 
City Avenue, adjacent to the college, and the Parkview campus, in Northeast 
Philadelphia. All subspecialty services are offered. The latest technologies in use 
include CAT scan, MRI, full imaging and invasive radiological procedures, and 
complete ultrasound. 

Month-long rotations in PCOM's hospital and affiliated hospitals begin during 
the third year. Assigned to an attending service, students participate as function- 
ing members of the health care team - morning report, rounds, all teaching and 
clinical conferences, and autopsies. By working closely with house staff, students 
leam the basics of hospital medicine and also train with both primary care physi- 
cians and sub-specialists in their offices. 

Flexible elective rotations enable students to pursue subspecialty or geo- 
graphical interests. Students have done rotations in Appalachia, national medical 
centers and third-world countries. 

Health Care Centers: The one rural and four urban health care centers spon- 
sored by PCOM offer unique leaming opportunities. There, students deliver 
hands-on primary care under supervision and become intimately involved in the 
care of patients. The centers provide cross-cukural experiences in underserved, 
poor, working class, and racially different communities. The Health Care Center 
experience also enables students to leam the sociology and economics of the 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 26 



health care system by dealing with diverse populations covered by private insur- 
ance, HMOs, and government medical assistance.

Admission to PCOM 

Admission to Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine is competitive and 
selective. Acceptance by the Faculty Committee on Admissions is based on the 
applicant's fulfillment of undergraduate course requirements, grade point average 
(GPA), Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) scores, and a personal interview

PCOM seeks the well-rounded, achievement-oriented person. The admissions 
committee considers contributing life experiences in non-traditional environ- 
ments of the student. Acceptance as a candidate for the degree of Doctor of 
Osteopathy and membership in the osteopathic profession also is based on hu- 
man factors that foster success in the life and work of a physician. These include 
breadth of education, quality of character, nature of personality, and a dedication 
to service. 

A strong liberal arts preparation to accompany education in the sciences will 
be of particular benefit in developing the human factors needed to become a 
caring physician.

Admissions. 

Early application and fulfillment of credential requirements are recommended. 

PCOM does not participate in a centralized application service. You will apply 
directly to the Faculty Committee on Admissions who will review your full appli- 
cation and all supporting materials. 

The committee will select those applicants to be interviewed and inform 
them of the interview date, time and place in writing. Though all appli- 
cants who are eventually accepted must be interviewed, the granting of 
an interview should not be construed as evidence of final acceptance. 

Early Admission to PCOM 

Highly qualified candidates who make PCOM their first choice and apply 
exclusively to PCOM are eligible for an early acceptance decision. The qualifica- 
tions and steps to be taken are the following: 

1. You must have a minimum 3.10 cumulative Grade Point Average and a 3-10 
science GPA. In addition, you must take the MCAT in the spring of your junior 
year and score seven or above in each subtest. 

2. File your application, the $50 application fee, and all supporting credentials by 
August 1 of the year prior to intended matriculation. (The supporting credentials 
required are the same as those listed above.) 

3. You will sign a statement affirming that you are applying solely to PCOM and 
wish to be considered for an early acceptance decision. You must also agree to 
withhold all other applications to professional schools until you are informed of 
PCOM's decision on your application. 

Personal interviews are held between August 15 and August 30 for qualified 
early admission applicants. Successful candidates will receive their letters of ac- 
ceptance by Labor Day. All other early admission applicants are still eligible for 
admission to PCOM, and their files will be entered automatically into the appli- 
cant pool for regular consideration.

College Tliition and Fees 

Tliition Schedule 1990-91 

The Board of Trustees established the following tuition for the 1990-91 
academic year. Tuition for Pennsylvania residents is $15,078 and tuition for all 
other students is $15,467. Tuition is kept as low as possible given increasing costs 
and declining governmental support for medical education. 

Upon notification of acceptance as a student, an advance payment of $500 is 
required to reserve a place in the first-year class. This advance payment will be 
deducted from the tuition payment due on registration day, but is not 
refundable in case of withdrawal. 

The annual tuition is payable in two installments. One-half of the tuition is 
due on registration day in August, and the balance is due on the first day of the 
second semester for first and second-year students. For third and fourth-year 
students, the first tuition installment is due on the first day of the first rotation 
for that college year; the date for the second tuition installment is the same as 
for first and second year students. Tuition payments are refundable in case of 
withdrawal before registration. 

Student Fees 

Each student in the first and second-year classes will be charged an annual 
equipment usage fee of $100 which is due on registration day, and all first year 
students will pay a $5 photography fee. All students will be charged a $35 annual 
yearbook fee also payable on registration day, along with the Student Council fee 
of $35. 

Each candidate for the degree of Doctor of Osteopathy must pay a graduation 
fee of $150 and a transcript fee of $50. These fees charged each member of the 



35 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



fourth-year class are due on the first day of their final semester. 

Fees are neither returnable nor transferrable. Tuition and fees are subject to 
change at any time at the descretion of the Board of Trustees. 

Late Payment Charges 

If tuition and fees are not paid when due, or the physical examination is not 
completed as scheduled, students may be barred from classes until the registra- 
tion and payments are completed. A fee of $30 paer week will be levied for 
unpaid tuition balances, and a $50 fee will be levied for late registrations. 

Tuition Refund Policy 

If a student withdraws from the college due to illness or other physical 
disability within 60 days of making a tuition payment, a pro-rata refund may be 
authorized at the Dean's discretion. The student must file with the Dean's Office 
a written notification of intent to withdraw, supported by a physician's statement 
of the student's health condition. No tuition or fee monies already paid will be 
refunded in case of a student's dishonorable dismissal or in the event of a stu- 
dent's dismissal or withdrawal due to poor scholarship. 

If a student chooses to withdraw for any other reason, or is granted a leave 
of absence during either the first or second payment period of the academic 
year, a tuition refund may be authorized. The effective date of withdrawal 
is the date on which the student filed with the Dean a written notification of 
withdrawal or request for a leave of absence. The allowable amount of 
refiandable tuition is as follows: 

A withdrawal within: Percent of Refund 
One week after tuition payment 75% 

Second through fourth week after payment 50% 

Fifth week after payment and thereafter -0- 

No fee or portion of a fee is refundable in case of a student's unauthorized 
withdrawal or leave of absence. 

The refund policy is subject to change at the discretion of the Board of 
Trustees, but in no instance will such a change become retroactive. 

Microscope 

Prior to the beginning of classes, each student entering PCOM is required to 
secure a binocular microscope. The standard of acceptable quality is a micro- 
scope with a built-in light source, a quadruple nose piece (low or scan, lOx, 
highdry, and oil immersion lenses), and a lOx eyepiece. Information on micro- 
scope rental is available before the start of fall classes for incoming first-year 
students. 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 36 



Financial Aid 

Upon acceptance, it is strongly advised that each new student contact the 
PCOM Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible in order to obtain the maxi- 
mum aid available. At the time of registration, proof of pending financial aid 
must be presented in lieu of that portion of the tuition and fee payment. 



Student Loans, Scholarships and Employment 

PCOM students are bright, ambitious, and determined to succeed 
academically. However, most need some financial aid during training, and the 
college makes every effort to help students meet tuition costs. 

Our tuition is comparable with state supported public medical schools, 
making PCOM the least expensive private medical school in Pennsylvania. The 
college also helps the student assemble a financial aid package and offers finan- 
cial planning seminars. On acceptance to PCOM, you may be eligible for a 
variety of financial aid programs. 

Loans and Scholarships 

Information or application forms for these programs can be obtained from 
PCOM's Office of Financial Aid. 

Auxiliary to the American Osteopathic Association. The auxiliary awards 
$3,000 scholarships to sophomore students only. The top winner receives the 
Lawrence W. Mills Award in the amount of $5,000. To be eligible, a student must 
be in the top 20 percent of the first-year class and demonstrate financial need, 
good moral character, motivation, and aptitude for the osteopathic profession. 
Those receiving a full scholarship from other sources are not eligible. April 15th 
is the application deadline. For information and an application, contact Mrs. 
Judie Colwell, 4376 Shire Cove Road, Hilliard, OH 43026, or PCOM's Office of 
Financial Aid. 

American Osteopathic Association/National Osteopathic Foundation 
Loans. Loans are available to third and fourth year students demonstrating need. 
The interest rate is eight percent and is due over the life of the loan. An admin- 
istrative fee of $20 is charged on each loan in lieu of insurance collateral and is 
deducted when the loan check is issued. The maximum yearly loan is $2,000 
and the total per student may not exceed $4,000. The four annual loan cycles are 
January, April, July, and October. Loans become payable two years after gradua- 
tion, or three years after graduation if the recipient serves an AOA- approved 
internship. 

Dr. Ethel D. Allen Scholarships. Founded with a memorial scholarship fund 
created by the William Penn Foundation, two scholarships of $5,000 each are 



37 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



given to first-year minority women medical students. Selection is based on finan- 
cial need and academic excellence, preference being given to students from 
Philadelphia. The scholarships are given in memory of Ethel D. Allen, DO, PCOM 
class of 1963, who was elected the first black woman member of Philadelphia 
City Council, and served as Pennsylvania's highest ranking black woman as 
Secretary of the Commonwealth. 

PCOM Alumni Loan Fund. The Alumni Association has established a fund for 
loans in the maximum amount of $1,000 per academic year (depending on the 
availability of funds) for third and fourth year students. The loan interest rate is 
six percent per annum, and the application deadline is December 1st. 

Stafford Loan Program (formerly Guaranteed Student Loans). The loans 
are available in the amount of $7,500 annually with an aggregate maximum of 
$54,750 (including undergraduate loans). Each applicant must demonstrate need 
and complete the required needs analysis. Applications may be secured from 
participating lending institutions. 

Supplemental Loans for Students. (SLS). The annual maximum has been 
raised to $4,000 with an aggregate maximum of $20,000 (including undergraduate 
loans). Applications may be secured from participating lending institutions. 

Health Professions Student Loans/Perkins Loans (formerly National 
Direct Student Loans). Loans are based on financial need and the availability 
of funds. These programs are administered by the PCOM Office of Financial Aid 
following federal guidelines. 

Health Education Assistance Loans (HEAL). Loans are available up to 
$20,000 per academic year with an aggregate maximum of $80,000. Each aca- 
demic year, an eligible applicant may borrow an amount equal to the difference 
between the cost of education and the amount of other financial aid. The loan is 
not federally subsidized, and the interest rate may not exceed the average of the 
bond equivalent on the 91-day Treasury Bill plus three percent. An insurance 
premium of eight percent is charged when the loan is processed. 

The Benjamin and Mary Siddons Measey Foundation Scholarship. The 

scholarship was established to benefit medical students at PCOM. Scholarship 
grants are drawn annually from the $10,000 gift. Awards are available to needy 
and worthy second, third, and fourth year students selected by the appropriate 
PCOM committee. 

Children's Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund has been established in 
memory of Gina Simelaro, Russell Tilley, and John Wynne. Scholarship recipients 
are selected by the appropriate PCOM committee. 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 38 



Student Employment 

The professional training program is quite rigorous, and student employment 
during the academic year should be undertaken only when absolutely necessary. 

PCOM participates in the College Work Study Program on campus. Students 
who are accepted for enrollment, and can demonstrate financial need as deter- 
mined by the Graduate and Professional School Financial Aid Services 
(GAPSFAS) needs analysis, are eligible to participate. Workstudy recipients are 
permitted a maximum of 15 hours employment per week during the college year. 
During vacations, 35 hour per week work study jobs are available to qualifying 
students. Applications may be obtained in the Office of Student Affairs. As 
specified in the provisions of the Pennsylvania Unemployment Compensation 
Law, employment of students will not be covered by any program of unemploy- 
ment compensation. 

Depending on the availability of funding, a few students are also employed in 
research positions. These positions are not dependent on the GAPSFAS needs 
analysis; consequently they are a welcome resource to students whose budgeted 
financial need has been met from other sources. This program is also adminis- 
tered through the Office of Student Affairs. 

In addition, a few departments and/or physician's practices hire students or 
their spouses on an individual basis. Arrangements for these positions are made 
directly through the student and the employer and are independent of the 
Financial Aid Program. 

Learn more about the financial aid programs available to students. Ask PCOM's 
Office of Financial Aid, 4150 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 for a free copy 
of our Student Financial Aid Handbook. Telephone (215) 871-2180. 



Student Life and Recreation 

PCOM students show great enthusiasm for the activities of the college commu- 
nity and personal friendships. Others find the spirit on this campus extra- 
ordinary, but our students think that collegiality is the obvious way to make 
academic life and human relationships most enjoyable. 

One clue may be the diversity of the students accepted by the college. The top 
three college majors among our students are biology, chemistry, and psychology. 
But also significantly represented are majors in mathematics, engineering, nurs- 
ing, business, and religion. Some are coming to medicine after careers in other 
fields, and still others have a background in another allied health profession. 

Student life is often viewed as an academic sidelight; our Office of Student 
Affairs sees it as essential to college morale and academic achievement as well 
as a critical element in developing the leadership and human understanding in- 
tegral to the role of a well-rounded physician. 



39 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Student Council 

Comprised of elected representatives from each class, the council directs 
student activities and speaks for students to tlie college administration. The pres- 
ident is elected by the student body, regular meetings are held, and the council 
publishes its own newsletter. Students are respected and involved in college gov- 
emance, serving on every major college committee and working with faculty to 
evaluate every course they take. 

Professional and Social Societies 

Professional interests are expressed through groups like the Student Osteo- 
pathic Medical Association. Also organized are chapters of the Academy of 
Applied Osteopathy, the American College of General Practitioners, and the 
American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine. 

The Pediatrics, Geriatrics, Surgery Club, Emergency Medicine, OB/G'^'N Club, 
Neuropsychiatry Club, the Student National Medical Society, St. George Medical 
Cancer Society, and Physicians for Social Responsibility are very active clubs, 
along with student chapters of the Pennsylvania Osteopathic Medical Association 
and the Society for the Advancement of Osteopathic Medicine. 

Our fraternities include Phi Sigma Gamma and Lambda Omicron Gamma. 

Minority Affairs 

In keeping with PCOM's sensitivity to minority concerns and commitment to 
increased minority enrollment, we have an active chapter of the Student National 
Medical Association. The college organizes an annual conference for minority 
undergraduate students, and an awards dinner honoring the contributions of 
minority physicians is held each Spring. 

In addition, the Summer Start program is offered to minority students 
accepted for admission. Two Ethel Allen Memorial Scholarships are given 
annually to first-year minority women students. 

Athletic Programs 

PCOM is the only medical school in Philadelphia with its oun playing field on 
campus. The college fields rugby, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, softball, golf, and 
men's and women's basketball teams. Several professional school athletic leagues 
in the Delaware Valley are managed by PCOM. Intramural basketball, softball, 
and volleyball games can also become fierce during the school year. 

Health Service and Insurance 

The OMCP Corporate Health Service provides routine medical care for all of 
our students. The costs of approved special consultations, lab work, and exami- 
nations will be submitted to the insurance plan for consideration for payment. 
Charges that exceed the payment made by the insurance plan or denied payments 
are left to the discretion of the individual department (Lab, Radiology, etc.). 
The student is encouraged to ASK FIRST so as not to be surprised by bills later. 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 40 



In addition, students are required to carry PCOM's Blue Cross/Blue Shield 
Plan, (most of the plan costs paid by the college), or to provide comparable in- 
surance of their own choice and purchase. Coverage for the student's spouse 
and dependents is also available through the college at the student's expense. 

Student Housing 

The college does not provide student housing on or off campus. However, the 
Office of Student Affairs serves as an informal clearinghouse by maintaining an 
extensive list of available rental apartments and rooms in the area. The listings 
are not published for distribution but may be used personally anytime during 
office hours. 

Educational Rights and Privacy Act 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) places certain 
limitations on the disclosure of personally identifiable student information main- 
tained by colleges, limits access to academic records, and gives students certain 
rights with regard to their educational records. 

Students have the right of access to their educational records, the right to ob- 
tain copies (25 cents per photocopy page), the right to seek correction of such 
records through informal and formal internal procedures, and the right to place a 
statement in such records explaining any information that the student believes to 
be inaccurate or misleading. 

PCOM has adopted a policy on educational records consistent with the re- 
quirements of FERPA and the regulations issued under it. A copy of this policy 
may be obtained from the Registrar. 

The college judges certain data to be "directory information" as defined by 
FERPA and subject to disclosure without prior consent of the student. Unless the 
student files a written objection, the college will treat the following as directory 
information: the student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of 
birth, major field of study, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, 
and the names of the undergraduate and/or graduate schools attended. Objec- 
tion to the disclosure of such information must be made in writing, signed by 
the student, and mailed to the Director of Student Affairs within 20 days of the 
date on the relevant notice sent with the PCOM summer mailing. 

An official signed and sealed copy of a permanent PCOM transcript will be 
sent directly to another educational institution, hospital, or government agency 
upon written request by the student or graduate. Only unofficial copies of a tran- 
script will be issued personally to a student or graduate. 

Complaints regarding alleged violations of rights accorded students by FERPA 
and its regulations may be directed in writing to the Family Educational Rights 
and Privacy Act Office, Department of Education, Room 4511, Switzer Building, 
400 Maryland Avenue, SW., Washington, D.C. 20202. 



41 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Statement on Substance Abuse 

The colleges recognizes the importance of assisting students in their develop- 
ment of a lifestyle free from the use of illegal substances and tlie abuse of 
alcohol. The college disciplinary policy provides actions including permanent dis- 
missal of students who engage in alcohol abuse and the use, sale, or distribution 
of illegal substances. Tlie Dean may require psychological assessment or 
toxicological (urine) testing of any student suspected of substance abuse. 
As a means of preventing an impairment from progressing to the stage at 
which disciplinary action is necessary, the Student Assistance Board serves as a 
means by which students can seek confidential early assistance with an impair- 
ment. This student-faculty group serves an advocacy role, and develops recovery 
programs, subsidized by the college, which enable students to continue their 
medical education while receiving needed treatment. The Student Assistance 
Board also investigates reports by concemed individuals and offers an altemative 
to the disciplinary process for students with a detected impairment.

The objective of the department of general practice of Philadelphia College of 
Osteopathic Medicine is to teach, encourage and promote excellence in the 
general practice of osteopathic medicine. The curriculum is formulated to help 
develop fundamental skills in the art of general practice. The osteopathic ap- 
proach to fundamental concepts in the field of general practice is integrated into 
the teaching program. 



First and Second Year 
Physical Diagnosis 

This course provides a review of relevant anatomy and physiology. It describes 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 50 



the sequence and techniques of physical examination. 

Aging Sensitivity Program 

All first and second year students are assigned to a geriatric client. Following 
an orientation period, each first year student will begin socialization visits with 
their client, which develops into more direct involvement with the patient's 
health care as the student progresses through the second year. The program pro- 
vides PCOM students with an early clinical experience and a practical introduc- 
tion to the unique longitudinal health care needs of the aging patient. 

Medical Ethics 

This course, presented in the 2nd year, is designed to expose students to ma- 
jor current ethical issues facing the physician and providers of health care. In- 
formed consent, death and dying, distributive justice, and ethical issues related 
to HIV infection are explored in a lecture series and small group case sessions. 

Geriatrics 

This second year course provides a multidisciplinary overview of geriatric 
medicine with an emphasis on osteopathic concepts. Unique medical and 
psychosocial aspects relating to the care of geriatric patients are discussed, along 
with basic science principles applicable to the process of aging. 

Third and Fourth Years 

Practical supervised clinical education is provided via rotations, including 
preceptorships in offices of general practitioners, health care centers of the col- 
lege and general practice hospital service. Conferences and lecture programs are 
an integral part of the program. Rural and urban experiences are available for all 
students. Students assume increasing responsibility, so they can develop into 
qualified practitioners.

53 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Second Year 

Tlie Internal Medicine course is presented in the sophomore year and pres- 
ents the wide breadth of internal medicine subdisciplines through lectures and 
other teaching modalities. Course material is coordinated with presentations by 
tlie departments of Surgery and Pathology to provide a full treatment of all sub- 
ject areas from several different perspectives. Descriptions of the subdiscipline 
didactic programs follow: 

Allergy and Immunology 

This course is a complete introduction to clinical allergy and immunology, 
including atopic disease, humeral and cell-mediated immunity and deficiency 
states associated with both components of the immune system. Current concepts 
regarding immunotherapy both in infectious and neoplastic diseases are also 
included. 

Pulmonary Diseases 

Using didactic lectures, oral quizzes and clinical presentations, this course 
introduces the student to the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of 
the respiratory system. 

Cardiology 

This course is intended to introduce the student to clinical cardiology at its 
most fundamental level with an explanation of the mechanisms of the cardiac cy- 
cle, the heart sounds, bedside clinical diagnosis of findings suggestive of 
underlying heart disease, the arrhythmias both atrial and ventricular, and the sig- 
nificant categories of commonly encountered organic heart disease, acquired, 
congenital, hereditary and infectious. The course will also include appropriate 
implications of peripheral vascular disease. 

Endocrinology and Metabolism 

Lectures and clinical demonstrations of diseases of the endocrine glands, in- 
cluding metabolic disorders, vitamin and nutritional disturbances. 

Gastroenterology 

Guest lecturers present a compendium of diseases of the gastrointestinal sys- 
tem, including the common and uncommon gastrointestinal conditions, biliary 
metabolism, and infections and infestations of the liver and gut. Endoscopic im- 
plications and slides are incorporated to demonstrate pathology as viewed by Dr. 
Gilhool and his associates through gastrointestinal endoscopy and colonscopy. 
Photomicrographs of various categories of the liver diseases are also presented. 

Hematology-Medical Oncology 

The course in hematology is designed to facilitate clinical diagnosis. Interpre- 
tation of peripheral blood smears is emphasized. Rational and orderly diagnostic 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 54 



approach will be stressed. Lectures on therapy will include appreciation of the 
problems encountered by patients with hematologic disorders. 

The course in medical oncology is presented to acquaint the student with the 
role of the chemotherapist in the management of patients with metastatic 
malignancies. The mechanism of drug actions and their toxicities will be pres- 
ented. Multi-modality approaches and experimental drug programs will be 
overviewed. 

Infectious Diseases 

The course in infectious diseases is a clinical approach to infectious diseases 
with emphasis on bacterial infections; some of the more common viral infec- 
tions are considered. The clinical application of antimicrobial agents will be 
reviewed, based upon their mechanisms of action. The more common infectious 
diseases of adults are included. 

Nephrology 

Lectures will be given detailing medical diseases of the kidney. Included are 
the nephritides, vascular, hereditary and degenerative renal diseases, and acute 
and chronic renal failure with introductions to dialysis and transplantation. 
In-depth discussions of electrolyte and acid base metabolism as well as 
hypertension are also provided. 

Rheumatology 

During the second year of training, "Introduction to the Rheumatic Diseases", 
is presented as a series of lectures and demonstrations by the staff in the Divi- 
sion of Rheumatology, Department of Intemal Medicine. Discussions of rheumat- 
ic disease from a clinical, laboratory, etiopathological and management point of 
view are highlighted and discussed. 

Preventive Medicine and Public Health 

The course in General Intemal and Preventive Medicine/Public Health is de- 
signed to prepare the student for the biopsychosocial aspects of medicine, as 
well as problem solving and the principles of prevention. The lectures consist of 
case presentations, interviewing techniques, discussions of the preventative as- 
pects of disease processes and basic intemal medicine practices. There is a de- 
signed approach encouraging interaction. Basic public health issues are pres- 
ented as part of this course, to prepare students for the practice of medicine 
within the context of society and in diverse communities. 

Third and Fourth Years 

The third year consists of clinical rotations through the various inpatient 
medical services of Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and its associ- 
ated teaching hospitals. During this time the student is also exposed to the 
realities of practice in an outpatient health care center under the supervision of 



55 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



responsible faculty physicians. The student is responsible for history taking and 
physical examination, including a detailed examination of the musculoskeletal 
system. After conferring with the supervising physician, the student proceeds 
with therapy, which also includes patient and family education. If the need for 
specialty consultation arises, the student accompanies the patient to the specialty 
consultation clinic. 

In the fourth year, the student plays an integral part in the patient's care, 
participating in the diagnostic work up as well as treatment, and remaining un- 
der the supervision of the intem, resident and attending staff physician. By the 
completion of the fourth year, the student is exposed to almost all categories of 
acute and chronic illnesses and embraces the application of the osteopathic con- 
cept in both etiology and therapeutics of disease processes. Throughout the 
whole four years of osteopathic education, the pre-eminence of preventive 
medicine is constantly reinforced.

First Year 

Medical Microbiology 

The goal of this course of study is to provide the medical student with a basic 
understanding of the biology of infection associated with members of the major 
groups of microbes and the immunologic responses of the host. 

The one semester of lectures covers the entire spectrum of infectious agents, 
their classification, morphology, and biochemical properties which are important in 
understanding their stability, mode of transmission and site of infection within the 
host. Basic mechanisms of disease production in each instance are also discussed 
along with the host response and appropriate diagnostic procedures. A laboratory 
course is given simultaneously with the lecture course. This is designed to familiar- 
ize the student with techniques essential for proper understanding and carrying out 
of aseptic technique, handling microorganisms and observing their basic properties, 
collecting and handling specimens for diagnosis, processing laboratory specimens, 
and interpreting laboratory results. 

The course naturally falls into the following divisions: 

Major Groups of Microbes 

An introduction to the groups of organisms: their classification, morphology, 
genetics and biochemical properties, biological properties and genetics, including 
some discussion of antibiotic resistance. 



57 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



Bacteriology and Mycology 

Emphasis is given to properties of organisms as related to pathogenesis of 
disease, diagnostic tests and their control. 

Parasitology 

A study of the protozoa, helminths and arthropods which are associated with 
human disease: their life cycles, pathogenesis, epidemiology and control measures. 

Virology 

The general properties of viruses and their replication for understanding of infec- 
tion, disease and treatment are presented. The epidemiology, laboratory diagnosis 
and prevention of infection are presented for the various viruses associated with 
human infection and disease. 

Immunology 

A presentation of the nature of antigens, immunoglobulins and complement, 
along with a detailed description of the various cells, tissues, soluble mediators, and 
organs of the immune system is given. Basic aspects of immune responses are cov- 
ered and, in conjunction with a study of various in vitro and in vivo immunological 
reactions, are related to: responses to foreign substances; resistance to microbial 
agents; immunopathological processes; immune tolerance; tissue transplantation; 
blood transfusions; and immune deficiency states.

cialty of neurology is approached from the modem therapeutic point of view 
and how the anatomic, physiologic and pathologic aspects are interrelated. The 
procedure of listing the neurologic history and technique of neurologic examina- 
tion is covered in detail. 

Third and Fourth Years 

Daily rounds are made by attending physicians in the department of neurology 
in the hospital. Third- and fourth-year students as well as house staff of the 
Hospital of PCOM have the privilege of attending these sessions. All interesting 
cases are presented in conference sessions attended by members of the depart- 
ment and monthly Neurology Grand Rounds are held. Visiting professors from

Private practice nurse midwives provide services at PCOM in collaboration 
with physician backup. Certified nurse midwives provide antepanum, 
intrapartum, postpartum and Gyn care to low risk women. Interested students 
have a unique opportunity to work with certified nurse midwives and leam alter- 
natives to traditional management. Nurse midwives work closely with their cli- 
ents and stress education with client participation in their care. Certified nurse 
midwives provide labor support and management as well as delivery. They use 
Jacuzzi therapy, bedbirths, and have decreased the need for medication, 
episiotomies, and Caesarean Sections. Exposure to certified nurse midwives pro- 
vides medical students with a widened scope of safe options available for family 
centered care. 

First Year 
Human Sexuality 

This course is designed to acquaint the medical student, who will soon be- 
come an osteopathic physician, with changing attitudes to this timely subject. 
Facts will be supported. Fallacies will be dispelled. How to take a sexual history 
and be comfortable with the sex topics and sexual dysfunctions will be explained. 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 60 



The sexual response cycle, sexuality in the aged, in pregnancy and in 
the chronically ill are other topics to be discussed. Rape, incest and counseling 
are also covered. Audiovisual techniques, guest lecturers, and seminars will aid in 
the presentation of this attitudinal subject. 

Second Year 
Obstetrics 

Lectures, demonstrations and live patient models. This course comprises a sys- 
tematic study of normal pregnancy, labor and puerperium. A review of reproduc- 
tion as it pertains to the human introduces the subject. This is followed by 
studies that concern the progress and management of normal pregnancy through 
its completion. The management of normal labor, the diagnosis of the various 
presentations and the mechanisms of labor are stressed. This is followed by 
studies of the pathology of pregnancy, diagnostic methods and treatment. 

Gynecology 

Lectures, demonstrations and live patient models. The course is introduced by 
a review of the anatomy and physiology of the organs of reproduction. The non- 
surgical gynecological diseases are then presented. Lectures and demonstrations 
of the diagnostic and operative gynecology procedures are presented. Family 
planning, contraception, infertility and gynecologic oncology complete the 
course. 

Third Year 
Outpatient Service 

Students are assigned to obstetrical and gynecological patients in the outpa- 
tient clinic. Practical management on an ambulatory basis under the supervision 
of a member of the service is offered. A general practice(family service) ap- 
proach is stressed. 

Hospital Service 

Students are assigned to general hospital and obstetrical gynecological service. 
On obstetrical service, the student is trained in history and physical examination 
of the obstetrical patient, given drills in the use of obstetrical forceps and vacu- 
um extractors, instructed in basic gynecologic pathologies and pelvic examina- 
tion of training "Gynny" models; offered daily conferences, and trained in the 
technical arts in preparation for the internship year. Facilities are provided for 
the student to be in the unit at all times. On general hospital service, the tech- 
niques of gynecologic history and examination are stressed. The student is ex- 
pected to follow the patient through all phases of hospitalization. A handbook is 
supplied containing information about assignments.

All courses for the first tvs^o years are required except those designated 
"elective." 

First Year 

Principles and Practice (Fundamentals) 

Students are introduced to the concept and philosophy of the osteopathic 
school of the healing arts in lectures and practice sessions. Fundamentals in the 
art of observation, palpation and evaluation are presented. Practice session 
sheets are fumished for both instruction and recording of findings. Surface anat- 
omy is studied and landmarks identified to lay a proper foundation for future 
work in this department as well as for physical diagnosis. Physiologic motions of 
the spine are considered in both lecture and practice sessions. Tests for active 
and passive motion are presented and carried out in practice sessions. Regional 
motion testing is applied. An accurate examination of the myofascial system with 
appropriate diagnosis of dysfianction is required by the end of this course. 

Myofascial techniques will also be demonstrated and the students will be ex- 
amined on their proficiency of these techniques after practicing them.

Principles and Practice II 

Scientific Background; Body Mechanics, Diagnosis Of Somatic Dysfunction, 
Pathophysiology and Neuroanatomic basic of somatic dysfunction; Thrust, 
(mobilization with impulse) techniques. 

Spinal lesion pathology and etiology are studied. Forces acting on and through 
the spine are considered, as is articular strain. Regional study as well as the 
mechanics of the transitional areas is included. The neuroanatomic basis of 
somatic dysfunction and the greater osteopathic lesion complex are studied in 
detail. Techniques for the treatment of somatic dysfunction are demonstrated by 
the staff and practiced by the students. 

Second Year Principles and Practice III 

Principles and techniques applicable to visceral disease states (viscero- 
somatic, somatovisceral, visceroviscero and somato somato reflexes). Introduc- 
tion to basic craniosacral mechanisms. Considerations in the selection of tech- 
niques are presented. 



Principles and Practice IV (Extremeties) 

Lectures and practice sessions are correlated and directed toward the 
understanding and management of various appendicular problems. Basic 
principles are taught and practiced along with basic techniques. 

Principles and Practice V (Principles and Techniques)- Elective 

Special sessions for additional in-depth study of osteopathic principles and 
practice of osteopathic manipulative techniques are offered to assist those who 
desire or have need to further their ability. 

Third Year 

Clinical rotation with active patient involvement with particular stress placed 
on role of osteopathic techniques in various conditions. 

The students are also given didactic lectures and clinical presentation. A 
weekly journal club is an important part of this rotation.

The formal course in otorhinolaryngology is given during the second year. The 
instruction is designed to meet the needs of a well trained primary care physi- 
cian. Emphasis is placed on the clinical approach of diagnostic and treat- ment 
pattems of common disorders of the head and neck area, as well as emergency 
trauma situations involving the soft tissue and bony structures of the face. The 
osteopathic considerations in etiology, diagnosis and treatment of head and 
neck disorders are discussed. 



First Year 
Neuroscience 

Members of the department participate in the clinical correlation programs in 
cooperation with the anatomy department. 

Second Year 

Otorhinolaryngology, Bronchoesophagology and Oro-Facial Surgery 

The purpose of the second-year course is to present from a practical clinical 
standpoint the common disorders of the head and neck seen by the primary 



65 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



care physician. The fact that these disorders account for 20 to 30 percent of all 
patients seen by the primary care physician is stressed. Covered are otology, 
rhinology, laryngology', bronchoesophagology, head and neck oncology, aesthetic 
facial surgery, dental and temporomandibular joint diseases, and emergency and 
trauma situations. 

Practical examination demonstration sessions are scheduled with small groups 
of students over the course of the second year. The use of E.N.T instrumentation 
is taught and then practiced by the students. A basic clinical skills evaluation is 
carried out by depanment members. 

Third and Fourth Years 

During the third year, all students are given a four-week practical rotation with 
various members of the E.N.T. department in office and hospital settings. 
Practical examinations and treatment of common problems of health care center 
and hospital patients are performed by the student under the direction of de- 
partment members. Observation and demonstration of specialty procedures at 
the health care centers and hospital provide an adequate foundation for practice. 
In the hospital, students perform history and physical examinations, and observe 
and assist in surgical procedures. The health care centers, hospital and emergen- 
cy room are used to develop in the graduating physician the knowledge re- 
quired of every physician conceming diseases of the head and neck. Demonstra- 
tions and observation of department members using new technology, such as 
the surgical laser, are integral parts of the program.

First Year 

Introduction to normal and abnormal pathology is presented by the 
Department of Pathology, within the Histology course, as part of the Anatomy 
curriculum. The presentations center around inflammation, repair, neoplasia, 
specific tumors, environmental pathology and toxins. 

Second Year 
Pathology I 

The initial portion of the course during the sophomore year is devoted to gen- 
eral pathology. During this time, specific discussions regarding basic 
pathophysiologic mechanisms are entertained. These areas are concemed with, 
but not limited to: inflammation and repair, cell death, cell alterations, fluid and 
hemodynamic derangements, environmental pathology, infections disease mech- 
anisms, and immunologic mechanisms of disease. The effort through the presen- 
tations is to establish a link between the student's basic information, already gar- 
nered from previous courses, and relate that understanding to the pathologic 
state, and finally, in selected cases, to bring the pathologic state to the clinical 
presentation in the proper patient setting. 

Pathology II 

In the second portion of the course, specific organ systems are reviewed in 
detail. These systems include, but are not limited to: diseases of the central nerv- 
ous system, special senses, gastrointestinal tract, female and male genitalia, skin, 
cardiorespiratory disorders, genitourinary diseases, and musculoskeletal disor- 
ders. 

The Laboratory Medicine Seminar specifically addresses in systematic fashion 
common laboratory parameters useful to the primary care physician. Within this 
time, discussion is brought about regarding laboratory procedures such as CBCs, 
cardiac enzymes, clinical chemistry, urinalysis, blood banking and coagulation, 
and laboratory statistics. 

Within the course, a mini "systems approach" is shared with the Departments 
of Surgery and Intemal Medicine. During this presentation, the Department of 
Pathology team teaches with the other departments the pathological aspects of 
the topics within the mini system, in a logical fashion.

Third and Fourth Years 

Tlie depanment of pathology and laboratory medicine provides elective rota- 
tions in the hospital laboratory for third and fourth-year students. Tliese rotations 
offer the student the oppc:)nunity to acquaint himself/herself with the techniques 
of laboratory performance, and the rationale of ordering tests to determine a di- 
agnosis, evaluation and interpretation of results, etc. Concurrently, the student 
has the opportunity to observe the clinical applications of laboratory medicine by 
reviewing patient chains, autopsy protocols, participating in scheduled C.P.C.'s 
and such other exercises required to prepare him/her for eventual responsibility 
in treating patients. 

During the rotation, the student attends and participates in tumor conferences, 
seminars, discourses, etc., in the college and hospital.

The pediatric didactic and clinical teaching programs consist of lectures, am- 
bulatory and inpatient pediatrics, and neonatal education. Pediatric patients are 
assigned to a third-year student and/or intern and resident whose evaluation in- 
clude complete and proper history taking, physical examination, and growth and 
development analysis with osteopathic structural integration. Patient management 
is supervised and demonstrated by attending pediatricians, residents, and the 
pediatric intems. 

Interns and third-year students are assigned on a rotating basis to inpatient 
pediatrics, neonatal service and ambulatory care. 

Third-year students are encouraged to attend intern and resident pediatric 
conferences which are held regularly as well as departmental conferences for 
their professional enrichment. The students are presented assignments both for 
reading and research with topics assigned by the department chairman and his 
pediatric associates. Visiting pediatricians and subspecialists are invited through- 
out the year to participate in pediatric conferences in the hospital. 

Second Year 

Lectures and audiovisual demonstrations. The normal development of the 
pediatric patient is emphasized. The total lecture schedule encompasses approxi- 
mately 50 hours and includes didactic material such as the study of the fetus, 
high-risk pregnancies, premature and newborn high-risk problems, and 
difficulties affecting perinatal care of premature and full-term infants. Preventive 
pediatrics (hygiene, infant feeding and immunizations) is discussed at the ambu- 
latory office practice level, as well as at the hospital critical care level. Gastroin- 
testinal, surgical, hematologic, nose and throat, and cardiovascular problems are 
studied and presented by the pediatrician and/or subspecialist. Lectures and au- 
diovisual demonstrations of the disease process with their influence on the fetus, 
newbom, and pediatric population are presented with diagnostic criteria and 
management. Fluid and electrolyte balance, emergency room care, medical as- 
pects of trauma, fever and convulsions, the unconscious child, metabolic prob- 
lems, and other pediatric problems are thoroughly covered. Bums, collagen dis- 
eases, enuresis, medical genitourinary disease and central nervous system prob- 
lems are discussed by the pediatricians and subspecialists. Special attention is 
given to developmental, neurological and behavioral pediatrics in this review by 
our pediatric development specialist. Our infectious disease pediatrician, 



69 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



neonatologist and cardiologist help to broaden the scope of our teaching prog- 
ram. Various pediatric surgical problems are also discussed to provide sufficient 
exposure to these entities. In addition, allergy, immunology and dermatologic 
pediatric problems are presented to give the student a comfortable understand- 
ing of this field. 

Third and Fourth Years 
Health Care Centers 

At PCOM, there are four urban health care centers to w^hich the third-year stu- 
dents are assigned, and they relate to our pediatricians at HPCOM by referring 
the more difficult diagnostic cases, cases that require more expertise and/or 
hospitalization. At our new ambulatory facility in the Medical Office Building, the 
pediatricians conduct a private outpatient practice and provide consultations to 
our attending staff and/or osteopathic practitioners who require a pediatric 
opinion. At our Lancaster Avenue Health Care Center, students, interns and resi- 
dents participate in the evaluation and care of children in a busy clinic practice 
under the supervision of a whole-time pediatrician. 

Hospital Instruction 

Pediatric patients are admitted to the Hospital of Philadelphia College of Medi- 
cine, where the third-year students, intems, and residents are assigned to the 
pediatric department. They are instructed by the attending pediatricians, the resi- 
dents and intems on service in areas of history and physical examinations, differ- 
ential diagnosis and management. Pediatric and neonatal procedures, perinatal 
care, and emergency neonatal methods are discussed and demonstrated by our 
neonatalogist and staff. The osteopathic concept is integrated in bedside demon- 
strations and discussions of patient care. 

The addition of neonatologists to our staff has geometrically increased the 
capabilities of our intensive care nursery to a tertiary center for high risk infants 
requiring critical care. These patients will be referred from other hospitals and 
transported by ambulance service with a pediatrician and nurse in attendance. 
To assure adequate pediatric training, some students are also assigned to other 
accredited hospitals or to private pediatricians for clinical pediatric clerkships. 
The department chairman oversees all these pediatric programs in consultation 
vAxh the Assistant Dean for Clinical Education.

Second Year 

Surgery I (Introduction) 

Basics and principles of surgery are presented by lecture and demonstration 
with the liberal use of audiovisual aids. Basic concepts and principles of osteo- 
pathic diagnosis as related to surgical procedures and treatment are emphasized 
in this course. 



Surgery II (Orthopedics) 

The series of lectures and demonstrations present the basic fundamentals nec- 
essary for the student to master in order to make orthopedic diagnoses. The 
general field of orthopedic problems, as well as congenital malformations and 



79 College Catalog for 1990-1991 



traumatic and acquired deformities are presented with emphasis on the more 
commonly encountered conditions. Part of the lecture series is designed to ac- 
quaint the student witli the various tyjoes of trauma associated with the 
musculoskeletal system, and where possible, these lectures are accompanied by 
clinical presentations. 

Surgery III (Urology) 

Basic fundamentals of genito-urinary diseases are given, including leading 
signs, symptoms and findings in genito-urinary diseases, as weO as discussion of 
all diagnostic procedures. Diagnostic urologic workup, both in office and hospi- 
tal, is discussed. Demonstration of urologic instruments is given. Lecture material 
consists of diseases, malformations and injuries of the penis, urethra, scrotum 
and scrotal contents, seminal vesicles, prostate and urethral and bladder disorder 
in the female. 

Pediatric urology, stressing the most common problems encountered, is also 
discussed. Discussions include diagnosis and both conservative and surgical 
treatments. Lectures also discuss diseases, injuries and malformations of the 
urinary bladder, including acute and chronic infections, calculus disease, 
iatrogenic injuries, tumors of the urinary bladder, as well as their treatment; cal- 
culus disease of the kidneys and ureters; diseases, malformations and injuries of 
the kidneys and ureters; tumors and cysts of the kidneys and adrenal glands. 
Management of the urologic patient with indwelling catheter and urinary diver- 
sion is also given. Discussion of urologic aspects of medical renal disease, 
en, at times in conjunction with the department of medicine. 

Surgery rv (General) 

Lectures and demonstrations dealing with an introduction to the surgical skills 
including sterile technique, suture technique, surgical diagnosis and pre-and 
post-operative care. Demonstrations of post-operative methods of diagnosis rela- 
tive to palpation of related somatic components affecting organic changes are in- 
cluded in the surgical training of the student. Special osteopathic manipulative 
procedures pre-operatively and post- operatively affecting the convalescence of 
the patient are demonstrated at the bedside. An integrated systems approach is 
taken in part of the course, combining general surgery material with Pathology 
and Intemal Medicine. 

Lectures and conferences dealing with regional surgery, include the study of 
gross pathology, surgical diagnosis and differential diagnosis. 

Neurosurgery, Proctology, and Plastic /Reconstructive Surgery are included in 
the course. Clinical lectures during the performance of various operations are 
presented with emphasis placed on diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. 

Third and Fourth Years 

The hospital clerkship schedule involves a rotation through the clinics and the 
affiliated hospitals with instruction in the fundamentals of sterile technique in 



Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine 80 



the operating room, assisting at surgical procedures and pre- and post-operative 
care. Certification for graduation by the surgical department will require attend- 
ance upon group assignments, in the operating rooms, post-operative areas, 
emergency rooms and surgical clinics as assigned. Practical surgical experiences 
are obtained in these areas through lectures, demonstrations, conferences and 
actual participation under supervision. 

Participation in the activities in the above areas provides the fourth -year stu- 
dent with excellent opportunities for correlating and rounding out surgical infor- 
mation and data gained in the first three years of pre-doctoral training. Confer- 
ences in the course of the out-patient department schedule develop recognition 
by the student of conditions suggesting surgical reference. Unusual cases of 
teaching value in surgery are constantly being reviewed in the clinics and hospi- 
tals. These cases serve as good material for grand rounds in the hospitals, which 
are under the direction of the senior surgeon in charge. 

Conferences and lectures are conducted throughout the entire year in general 
and traumatic surgery for extems, intems and residents. The students are 
requested to prepare and present these teaching cases under the direction of an 
attending surgeon. Guest surgeons are invited to lecture to the surgical students 
from time to time during the year. This serves to give the student a wider scope 
of knowledge with diversification of opinion.

The Alumni Association was organized when the third class graduated from 
PCOM in 1902. Since then, the college has graduated nearly 7,700 physicians and 
our alumni practice in all 50 states and in nine foreign 
countries. 

The Annual Alumni Reunion takes place at the college on the fourth weekend 
of January when Founders Day is celebrated. Along with many renewed friend- 
ships, alumni enjoy individual class reunions, professional postdoctoral programs 
featuring prominent alumni speakers and panelists, followed by the annual alum- 
ni dinner dance. 

Among the association's purposes are the promotion of PCOM to prospective 
students and financial support for excellence in education. Contributions to the 
Annual Fund rose an unprecedented 19 percent last year, showing alumni appre- 
ciation for training received here and their continuing loyalty to the college. 

Throughout the year the association sponsors programs that benefit its 
members and students of the college. Our Student Loan Fund gives financial aid 
to third and fourth year class members, and the International Neurology Fellow- 
ships enable students to do rotations in Europe and with the NIH in Washing- 
ton, D.C. Favorites among alumni are the post-Founders Day CME in St. Thomas 
and the Colorado Ski CME. Seminars are also offered before the annual AOA 
Convention. 

To bring news of the college to alumni, students, parents and friends, the 
association assists the Communications Department in publishing Osteopathic 
Digest, a quarterly magazine that has repeatedly won graphic and print awards. 
Bronze medallions are given to the 50th anniversary class. Many services are 
offered to active association members, such as group travel tours, insurance 
programs, and discount purchasing. 

The new Alumni Athletic Field on campus, where our championship teams 
tear up the turf, was created through a generous gift of the association. Our 
Alumni Board of Directors meets semi-annually during Alumni Weekend and the 
June Commencement. 

When students receive their DO degrees, they are welcome to join the 
association and show their medical college colors!
